About this accommodationBreathe in the fresh air as you pull into the ample driveway of this most traditional Tuscan villa. A classic, handsome villa awaits with massive vistas of the whole valley and beyond.
Wind your way up the gentle hill on a quiet country road, past the tiny hamlet of Ripoli and turn onto a pine and cypress lined drive. Breathe in the fresh air as you pull into the ample driveway of the most traditional Romanza Tuscan villa. The classic, handsome 3-story stone villa awaits with green wooden shutters, tiled roof and massive vistas of the valley and beyond.
Large and gracious ensuite bedrooms, many adorned with beautiful murals from the early 1900s will have you dreaming of your next days’ adventures. Will it be a tour of a local monastery with the owner of the villa as your guide or a private wine tasting with your own sommelier? Perhaps exploring the local villages or towns in Tuscany or nearby Umbria, or maybe a day lounging by the pool is just what you need?
Monterchi is a full village just 2 miles away with shops, grocery store and restaurants. Most famous is the Madonna del Parto by Piero della Francesca painted in 1460 in the local church.
Dating back to 1785, Romanza Villa enjoys a beautiful park-like setting, filled with ancient oaks, cypress and pine trees. The villa is situated in the midst of 2.5 acres of gardens filled with roses and trees inviting you to bring a book, a glass of wine and sit back and relax.
French doors from the kitchen open to a shaded outdoor dining area in the garden furnished with a large table with seating for 12. A magnificent pergola, covered in Moscatello and Canaiola grapevines, beckons you down a shady gravel path to a lower level where you will find the fully outfitted swimming pool and more sweeping views.
The gardens and swimming pool are lighted at night, ideal for long summer evenings under the stars in this most private and gorgeous setting. The views and grounds are truly spectacular.
Upon entering the villa step down 4 stairs to the left and find yourself in the comfortably furnished living/dining room with beamed ceilings, French doors and wall mural of the Tuscan countryside. The dining table sits in front of a large decorative fireplace and expansive archways into the kitchen.
The roomy kitchen has a kitchen table with marble counter-top, perfect for rolling out pasta. The table even has a clever and unique feature; built into one of the corners you’ll see a round knob, pull it and you’ll find a traditional pasta rolling pin! French doors lead out to the dining patio and the expansive grounds.
All 6 ensuite bedrooms are on the 2nd & 3rd floors.
On the 2nd floor, the tiled hallway leads to a Juliette balcony with views out over the pool and the valley below. The first room to the left is a pretty sitting room with a 4-seat table. Four ensuite bedrooms, one with its own private balcony, are accessed via this hallway. Each bedroom is enchanting, with calming soft color palates and many have hand-painted ceilings. The top floor has 2 more ensuite bedrooms with more soul-soothing views.
Romanza Villa is a marvelous blend of the traditional and the modern in a storybook setting. The owner is an engaging and charming man who delights in sharing the villa's interesting history with guests. Included in your stay, should you desire, he will take you on a tour of a local monastery and wine tasting at a nearby winery.
